In 2006, Roberto, original artisan glacier Milan opens Arlequin Gelati Italiani in Nice. His creative approach, its taste pronounced for innovation, knew enchant and surprise the taste buds of all customers. Today Roberto continues to search for your pleasure, the finest ingredients and the most subtle flavors all around the world. Soft and rounded flavors, spoken or delicate, ice in Arlequin is primarily an extraordinary experience common, a journey of the senses of taste sensations to none. What moments of happiness for our child's soul!

Just north of the railway bridge crossing the main street Av Jean Medecin is Nice's "Picasso of Ice cream" Arlequin. Glacier Roberto, who creates all the flavours himself, is an artist in ice cream. Opening only in main season,March to September, Arlequin has a steady queue of locals who have learned there is none better. Whilst Fennochio offers tourists a... More

Great ice cream with lots of different flavours. We came here twice because of popular demand from family. A little bit out of the way but definitely worth the visit.

Yes, this really is the best. The flavors are delightful, the ice cream is beautiful to look at. I found the portions just right, and the people who work there are friendly. Without a doubt, some of the best gelato and sorbets I've ever had. Went every day that I stayed in Nice!

We were pleasantly surprised by Arlequin having been disappointed by a few other top rated ice cream shops. The flavor selection is great, the sorbets and ice creams have great taste and texture and the service was good too. It's nice to see a shop that has a real passion for ice cream rather than just good enough to get... More

I had the fig sorbet and chocolate sorbet! It was so good that it tasted like ice cream. Their sorbets and gelato are packed with the flavor of the ingredient so you can really taste the pistachio if you order pistachio! The staff was great and let me sample a few flavors.

Living in the Nice Old Town I have tried all the ice cream in the tourist centre, where it ranges from poor to very good. Roberto, the passionate gelato maker who runs this little shop just north of the train station, is in a league of his own. Open only six months a year, he spends winters in his native... More

When I was a kid, I once said to my grandmother, "When I grow up, I'm going to eat ONLY ice cream". Now I'm grown up, I know that's really possible, and that, if there's a heaven, it'll be somewhere like Arlequin, but with ice-creams that you can eat forever without getting fat or diabetes. This is the best ice... More

Certainly one of the best ice cream you will ever try. Made with premium ingredients, which give out all their flavours. Don't leave nice without going there, no excuse it is just on the tram line..
